LIVINGSTON, NJ - A first-half goal from Livingston's Tori Belcuore in the 16th minute of the home game was decisive, as the Summit High School girls' varsity soccer team, despite a tremendous work rate and tenacity, was unable to score--falling to the Lancers, 1-0, on Monday.

Belcuore scored on a scramble off a corner kick. Summit troubled much of the first half by the laser service provided by Lancers' Caitlin Sugarman’s off-set pieces. Throughout the opening 40 minutes, and the high majority of the match, Livingston had the majority of possession, but Summit defended bravely, forcing the Lancers to do a lot of east-west running, and limiting the danger to crosses into the box.

The Hilltoppers themselves generated several forays into the Livingston penalty area, but either the final pass or final touch was lacking, and all that Summit had to show for their efforts was a handful of half-chances over the full 80 minutes.

Despite the loss, Summit Head Coach Gary Healey said he was proud of his team's performance. "I take a lot of positives out of this. Playing a very strong team, we defended well, kept our shape and, even though Livingston came at us, we stuck to our principles and tried to play through them."

Livingston next plays Glen Ridge at home on Oct. 1, at 4 p.m. Next up for Summit is an Oct. 1 home match versus Oak Knoll, with match kick off set for 4 p.m.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
